Book your service
It is advisable to consider having your vehicle serviced regularly, this will ensure that it continues to run smoothly and can also highlight any problems that you may not have been aware of. A service will identify areas of wear on your vehicle’s key components. This will, in turn, reduce the risk of a breakdown.
When it comes to selling your car – if you can evidence of regular servicing or a full service history, you can generally ask a higher price for the vehicle. A buyer will pay more for a car that has been maintained regularly.
When to have your vehicle serviced:
It is recommended that a car should have a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months, and an interim service every 6,000 miles or every six months to keep it running reliably and safely.
